AusCERT 2013 day 1: Speed, fraud, and interruptions

Summary:What do security specialist HD Moore and the Queensland Police have in common? They both feature in this lighthearted round-up of day 1 at AusCERT 2013.

Later in the day, Brian Hay from the Queensland Police introduced delegates to Jill, a victim of Nigerian scammers. If you think people like Jill, who fall victim to these scammers, are greedy and stupid, think again.
